Something artful this way comes



OnePast7, located in Suffolk's historic Professional Building at 100 N. Main Street, recently celebrated its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony and an open house. Named for the clock on the building that is stuck at 7:01, OnePast7 provides studio work spaces for artists from throughout the region, gallery space for displaying and selling their work, classroom space for classes and workshops, and an event space. The response to the OnePast7 has been so enthusiastic that founder Ed Beardsley will be subleasing additional art spaces directly across the street. The well-attended open house gave the public an opportunity to meet with the artists, and view and purchase artwork while checking out the new space.
